"We went Rangering! Trails were awesome-a lot different than Naples"

"In spite of cold and rainy weather we dressed warm and dry so we could still ride on our ATVs and enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful part of our state. It is just a beautiful time of year up here."

Maine ATV Trails and Events


ATV /Four Wheeling

ATV riding has grown in popularity in the past few years and you will find some of the best ATV trails in Maine in the Jackman-Moose River Region; over 300+ miles that will take you through unspoiled wilderness and on up to scenic vistas. From Jackman you can ride south to the Forks, east toward Rockwood and as of July 21, 2007, you can go north across the Canadian border into Quebec, offering you even more places to explore.

Spend the night, the weekend, or a week and enjoy all that our region can offer. You can access ATV trails from many of the accommodations listed on the directory as well as from most restaurants, stores, and gas stations in town. Or, if you choose to only ride for the day, you can park your trailer at the Border Riders Clubhouse.

Trail maps are available at the Chamber of Commerce Booth, at many local businesses in town and on line at Border Riders Club. Our trails are clearly marked to provide hours of safe and fun riding. If you are new to the area and prefer a guided tour, some businesses do offer this. Check with your lodging host or the Chamber of Commerce for more information on guided tours.

ATV Season usually open Memorial Day Weekend; the exact date depends on when the snow melts and the ground dries out and they stay open until mid-November. Please contact the Border Riders Club for specific dates and information.

ATV EVENTS

ATV Rendezvous

An exciting addition to the Jackman Region ATV trail system in 2007 was the connection between our trails in Maine to Quebec Canada. On July 21st, 2007, the Border Riders Club joined with the ATV Club in Quebec for an ATV Rendezvous. This was an organized trail ride to the Canadian Border, where they met up with the Canadian Riders to officially open the new trail.

ATV Jamboree

Every September, the Border Riders Club sponsors an ATV JAMBOREE. They have guided trail rides, races, mud riding, food and of course Lot of Fun! Plan a weekend visit to Jackman to enjoy the ATV trails in late September and partake in the fun at the ATV JAMBOREE.
